About Me:

I study comparative public policy in advanced industrial democracies, with a focus on health policy. I have written on the development of public pharmaceutical insurance programs in Canada, Australia, and the UK, and my current research focuses on changes in drug assessment and reimbursement policies. I am particularly interested in the role of patients and members of the public in deciding which drugs should be covered by public plans.
